To browse search results in the OPAC, you can move forward and back in the list using the Previous and Next page buttons. Records are given a progressive number and can be selected by ticking the appropriate box, to create subsets, filter and order results (also by relevance) or narrow the search.
The default record format is the short format, with columns Autore (Author), Titolo (Title), Anno (Year), Biblioteca (Library). This format shows you:
1) whether the document is owned by a certain Library. For instance, the field will say "Bicocca-Sede Centrale";
2) whether the document is currently on loan, by reading the two numbers under the name of the library; the first is the number of copies owned by the library, the second the number of copies on loan. For instance, 1/1 means that the only copy owned by the library is on loan;
3) by clicking on the name of the Library on the right:
- the document's due date, if it is on loan, and if there are any reservations (prenotato - reserved); otherwise, the field will say Disponibile (Available);
- the copy status: the document can be lent for 30 days, if the field says Prestabile (For lending), lent for 20 days, if the field says Prestabile 20gg (For lending 20 days), or available for consultation only, if it says Consultazione (Consultation); sometimes documents can be in acquisizione (in acquisition), in catalogazione (currently being catalogued), a rilegare (at the binder's) or smarrito (lost);
- the shelfmark (see N. B.), which you must write down to find the document on the shelf; if the name of the Library does not appear, it usually means that the work is made up of several volumes, therefore, to find the shelfmark, you must first view the full format, then click on "Vedi " (See) or "Vedi record" (See record) and then on the Library name.
Search results in the OPAC can be displayed in different formats, by clicking on the number in the left column under the heading "#": completo (full), citazione (citation), UNIMARC, UNIMARC con campi (UNIMARC with fields). The full format shows the bibliographic record and other navigation options, which allow you to retrieve a scroll-down list, similar records, holdings information, and to link out, for instance to the e-version of a journal or to search the Net with a search engine (Google or others).
N. B. The shelfmark for a volume is made up of: 3 figures which stand for the subject class with its divisions and sections, one or more extra figures for specific subjects and their subsets, 4 letters for the first three letters of an author's surname and the first letter of his/ her name (the first author in case the work is the result of a collaboration), the first 3 letters from the first word of the title, the publication year. For instance: the shelfmark of the work D. Balasso, D. Duccoli, M. Orecchi, "La gestione delle risorse umane in biblioteca", 2000 is CDD.023.2019 BALD.GES/2000.
